Politics as Practised in the Ways of Today Supporting Yesterdays are certainly no Great Games Play.*
Mrs May is very fond of saying that politics is not a game, and yet here we all are, playing their games?:-) ..... giving the oxygen of publicity to their bonfires of desires and vanity projects/secret exclusive executive programs.
The difference nowadays though, and this is a fact which it would be self destructive to deny and/or attack, is that some who may be more than just a chosen few, are considerably smarter than any past or current phorm of opposition or competition are able to understand and defeat.
Or would you like to disagree to prove the point valid?
*And that is why No10 actions are more Brian Rix Whitehall farce than anything else remotely exciting.
